Having a dry basement protects your home’s foundation, increases usable space and adds value to your property. One of the most effective ways to keep your basement dry is by installing a drainage system. However, not all basement drainage systems are created equal, and it’s important to choose a system that will work efficiently for you in the long term.
Interior drain tile systems operate by collecting groundwater before it enters your living space. The system consists of a perforated pipe that is installed around the perimeter of your basement, at the foot of the foundation wall. This pipe collects groundwater and directs it towards a sump pump, which then pumps the water out of your basement.
An interior drain tile system is one of the most cost-effective ways to keep your basement dry. Unlike exterior drainage systems, which require excavation, interior drain tile systems can be installed without major disruption to your property. And because they require little ongoing maintenance, they are a cost-effective investment in the long term.
A wet basement is a breeding ground for mold, mildew, and other harmful contaminants. If left unchecked, these contaminants can lead to structural damage to your home’s foundation. An interior drain tile system helps protect your home’s foundation.
